The Graffiti Run

March 2, 2015 — Leave a comment

The Graffiti Run will be the most colorful day of your life. Bold statement, we know (especially if you lived through the 70′s or ever owned a hyper-color t-shirt), but just hear us out. First off, they use the term “run” loosely at the Graffiti Run. Their 5K course is more about having a blast with friends and family than it is about busting out four-minute miles. So feel free to run, walk, dance, crawl, roll, piggy-back ride, or summersault your way through the color madness.

Secondly, the no-six-pack-required course means the Graffiti fun Run is for EVERYONE (unless you hate color or smiling, then you are not invited). You will see green grand-parents next to pink college students. Yellow marathon runners alongside blue children. Orange moms next to purple unicorns. They only have two rules: you must get absolutely drenched in color and have an amazing time.

When you cross the finish line you’ll find yourself forever changed by the accomplishment, and by discovering just how much heart you really have. You’ll carry this achievement with you as you train, eat, and live, all the way to your next Bad Ass Race. So if you’re ready to step outside of your comfort zone, experience an adrenalin rush like no other, and take your existence to the next level, sign up for a Bad Ass America Race right now!

Now that we’ve got the inspiring, motivational, blah blah f*cking blah description out of the way, let’s talk Bad Ass America in real people language. First and foremost, there’s a challenge. A knock down, drag out, fun as hell obstacle course that’ll make you run, jump, climb, crawl, lift, and slosh your way to the finish line. It’ll be brutal, but it’ll be awesome. During the course you’ll smile, laugh, make friends, curse the friends who dragged you into this torture, and absolutely feel like a Bad Ass. Once it’s over, eat some food, drink some drinks, and have a little fun with the other Bad Asses that ran or came to watch and cheer you on.

As for the “lifestyle” word they use, they mean it. They want you to stop thinking like an average person and start thinking like a Bad Ass when it comes to fitnessnutrition, and living. Their goal is to get you training like an athlete, eating for results, and taking on new challenges every day, all while having a good f*cking time. Don’t worry, they’ll give you plenty of suggestions and will always set an example by living the Bad Ass life.

Mr. Events.

Spartan Race is an outdoor obstacle course challenge. The mission is to get you active, healthy, excited about change, and return to your ancient roots where running through woods, getting dirty, and facing adversity was part of everyday life. The events are all about challenging today’s perception of normal. The race is designed to test your resilience, strength, stamina, quick decision-making skills, and ability to laugh in the face of adversity.

?????????????????????????????

Spartan Race now introduces a level for everyone beginning with the entry-level Spartan Sprint, intermediate level Super Spartan, the advanced Spartan Beast, and the ‘99.9% need not apply’ extreme level Spartan Death Race. Whatever your level, Spartan Race will test your strength, stamina, and sense of humor. This is your chance to live or die like a Spartan!
